Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of psychotherapy that is designed to help clients deal with the emotional anguish that stems from traumatic life events. EMDR is an evidence-based and research-backed therapy that has shown to be effective for treating PTSD and other forms of trauma. This therapy is officially recognized by the World Health Organization and the Veterans Administration among other groups.
By addressing the emotional pain in an effective manner, and removing entrenched mental blocks, the client can move toward healing. In addition to being a productive treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), EMDR can also be used to treat anxiety, depression and other common mood disorders. As an experienced EMDR practitioner, I guide clients through the process and help them achieve the best results possible.
